WATERVILLE, Maine – Setting new personal records all day long, the Husson women's outdoor track & field squad finished the Thomas (Maine) Small School Invitational in third with 74 points out of nine schools that scored.
Two Eagles came out on top with second place marks with Bella Comeau shaving off nearly two seconds from personal best time as she crossed in at 18.82 in the 100-meter hurdles. This time now bumps her up to fifth in program history. She then went on to pole vault, tying the sixth best clearance in HU records and a new personal best hitting 2.45 meters (2nd). The other Eagle to achieve a second-place feat was Erin Kashian in the hammer throw. Setting a new PR, she now holds the fifth best throw in school history after sending it 33.62 meters. Emily Banks also set a personal best in the event as she took third with a 29.80-meter launch.
Jasmine Stojanovich took on two of the other throwing events as the discus landed 26.28 meters away to grant her fourth place at the meet and a new personal best. She also finished in sixth place in javelin, reaching 22.29 meters while Jelena Graef accomplished a fourth-place throw of 24.38 meters.
Tackling some long runs, Destiny Anair ran a PR in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:52.49 and fifth in the 1500-meter run as she crossed in at 5:56.60. Also setting new personal best times in those events were Stevie Chayer taking sixth (3:02.63) in the 800 and Renee Dostal pacing out a time of 5:58.43 (seventh) in the 1500.
In the team events, Dostal, Anair, Madison Cole, and Danielle Scott bumped off the fourth-best time in HU history in the 4x800-meter relay with a time of 12:14.59 which was good enough for second. Then in the 4x400-meter relay, Amanda Marcus, Kaitlin Prescott, Chayer, and Comeau helped bring home points with a third-place sprint (5:36.81).
Closing out scoring on the track, Banks brought in a third-place time of 1:20.28 in 400-meter hurdles in her first try ever competing in the event while Scott grabbed fourth, crossing in just seconds later (1:28.45).
The Husson women will be traveling to Lewiston, Maine next Saturday, April 20th to compete in the Aloha Relays at Bates College.
